Arizona State University has decided to rename its law school in honor of recently-retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. According to this press release, ASU’s law school will henceforth be called the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU. The Dean of ASU’s law school, Patricia White, stated "We are very excited about the opportunity to be the first law school named after a contemporary woman...One cannot overestimate Justice O’Connor’s importance as a role model for women and how central her success has been to the acceptance of women in legal practice and the judiciary."
